How to plant a lemon in a cup to perfume and decorate your home

Sometimes and without even knowing why, our home can acquire an unpleasant odor or, more simply, it can have no smell at all. It’s a reality that has a very simple solution: plant a lemon in a cup .

Lemon is one of the most used and appreciated fruits. This citrus fruit is rich in vitamins C, P and group B , has disinfectant properties capable of eliminating bacteria and fungi and is used in the production of flavorings and cosmetic products.

Below we explain how to plant a lemon in a cup step by step, to have an excellent result in the shortest possible time.

To start, you need the seeds of about 5-10 lemons. The seeds must be whole and in good condition, and should be placed in a glass of clean water to be hydrated.

Discard the seeds that remain afloat, then after a few minutes drain them and dry them with absorbent paper. Pour some moist soil into the cup, then arrange the seeds in a circular pattern, covering all the soil.

Cover with a small layer of gravel and wait about 10-15 days, after which the seedlings should appear. From this moment on, water every morning with a bottle equipped with a spray diffuser.

If the seedlings are too close together, you can transplant them or remove one. Their growth is slow, and it will take about 4 or 5 months before they reach a size that requires transplanting.
